Dentures are restorative dental appliances that complete your smile by filling in the gaps caused by missing teeth. Dentures are removable and can be taken in and out, whenever you want to.
When looking for the right dentures, it’s important to choose a dental practice that fabricates high-quality and long-lasting dentures. At Eaglehawk Dental, we offer premium dentures for residents in Eaglehawk who are looking for an efficient solution for tooth loss.
How Dentures Restore Your Smile
Dentures are one of the many restorative treatment options that Eaglehawk Dental offers. They are used to help restore the function of your jaw, improve your speech and chewing abilities, and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Your dentist will examine your jaw and the remaining teeth as well as discuss the other options with you. If you and your dentist have agree on dentures as your restorative treatment, the customisation of your denture will the next step, which will be completed over a series of appointments.
What Are Dentures Made of?
To fit over your bone and soft tissues of your jaw, dentures are composed of plate, either metal or acrylic. Ceramic or acrylic replacement teeth are attached to the plate in order to match your remaining teeth to achieve a natural look.
At Eaglehawk Dental, we fabricate full and partial dentures to restore the proper function and beauty of your smile.
Full dentures – this type of denture can either be conventional or immediate and is suitable when all of your teeth are missing or will be extracted. Your dentist will fabricate a full denture after the teeth have been extracted and your gum tissues have already healed. The denture is ready to be placed in your mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.
Partial Dentures – your dentist may recommend partial dentures if you have some remaining healthy teeth. Partial dentures are removable and sometimes referred to as removable bridges. Partial dentures can be made of an acrylic or metal frame with small clasps that grip onto your adjacent teeth, filling in the gaps with denture teeth.
Keep Your Denture Long-lasting
Dentures are removable, so you can effortlessly clean them at home. Because the false teeth can easily discolour, just like your natural teeth, proper home care and regular dental check-ups are necessary to maintain their form and colour. With proper care and maintenance, your dentures can last for many years.
